"Spree is a place where heaven and earth are very close - everywhere you could see bits of heaven."
Wow! That's some amazing feedback from one of the leaders whose group attended SPREE. We can't promise your group heaven at Spree Central 2020 but what we can offer is an unforgettable action-packed, faith-filled weekend (we do our best and God does the rest!)
If you have been to Spree before, you'll kind of know what to expect: a crazy weekend of activities alongside a teaching and worship programme designed to help young people (8-15) to either take a first step of faith or help them move forward on their spiritual journey.
You'll know that, other than organise your group to come and to take responsibility for their welfare over the course of the weekend, the programme is all sorted by the nice people on the Spree team so that you can spend some quality time with your young people.
You'll also know that we have sole use of Rock UK's beautiful 120 acre Frontier Centre site at Irthlingborough in Northamptonshire.
If you have not been to Spree before what can you expect?
Friday evening kicks off with a free mega-barbecue, so, even if you are self-catering, your first night meal is sorted. We then have some time in the teaching and worship venues which, this year, will again be divided into under-11s, 11+ and a 'Going Deeper' option for those young people who have already made a commitment.
The sessions are fun, interactive and challenging and will feature a mixture of games, worship, talks, videos, drama, prayer and response times. Then it will be straight into our Late Nite programme which will include a night walk, games, movies, youth cafe and prayer activities. Then it's to bed (and hopefully to sleep!) before we kick off our Saturday activities, such as canoeing, raft-building, King Swing, abseiling, archery, football, arts & craft and giant inflatables along with further teaching sessions...plus a few surprises.
There's a further chance to take part in activities on Sunday morning, including our mega tug-of-war, and then, after lunch, a final opportunity to connect with God, and reflect upon what He's done over the weekend, before it's time to go home, taking with you some young people who will have memories that will stay with them forever and hopefully new, renewed or strengthened faith for their life journey. Here's what one another leader said about Spree:
"We had a fantastic time in a beautiful setting for a great price, with great activities - a great stepping stone into the Christian life."
For young people aged 16+, Spree offers the opportunity to join our Service Crew - a great way to make new friends, develop leadership skills and grow in their faith. If you have young people who you think would make great Service Crew members, please encourage them to sign up for the weekend.
